TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Tucson police identified the man killed in a motorcycle crash on Tanque Verde Road on Sunday afternoon, June 11, as Ricky Jay Broschat.

The Tucson Police Department said the 60-year-old Broschat was seen driving fast and changing lanes repeatedly before the accident, which happened around 2 p.m. on Tanque Verde between Dos Hombres Drive and Pantano Road.

"As the rider moved from the curb lane to the median lane, he struck the raised median," the TPD said in a news release. "The rider then crossed over the median and crashed into the westbound curb lane."

The TPD said Broschat was wearing a helmet but it came off during the crash.

The east and westbound lanes of Tanque Verde were closed for several hours after the accident.
